One hand? I see 2 hands used in the video.
One hand is required to hold onto the line (line as in depower line/swivel/release sleeve) and the other hand is plugging in the CL. If you aren't holding the line, it's equivalent to plugging into a loose cord. E.g. Just like trying to plug an electric tool into an extension cord... you need two hands to perform this task since both parts are not ridged.
What's different here is the hand holding the line is not having to push up the release sleeve and then reset the lock-pin before letting the release sleeve slide back. Just like mentioned above, it's simply plug in and go, just like a seatbelt. Go to 0:54 in the vid to see this exact action.

Here are two CL systems that DO require both hands to work two components to reengage the CL...

I like both of these systems because the lock-pin is hidden when the CL is released.

That was a good spot! - The animators need to get it right.

Good to see red and blue clear on the bar.

LOLOLOLOL so much marketing garbage. Why not just say "all the modern features that better bars have had for almost a decade." Also that figure 8 leash attachment is shown misused two times in the video.

actually all they have to say is 1/2 the price of any other major bar with all the same features ...

The only unique feature that I see with this bar is the ability to reload the CL with only one hand (0:48 in the vid). I also like that when the CL opens, the lock-pin folds inward like on North's Iron Heart, eliminating the possibility of an injury from an exposed lock-pin like found on many other release systems.
It also has all of the other popular or preferred features that are now becoming ubiquitous on modern bars (aspects of North and Ozone bars imo). And last, it has the safest and most proven color-way for the bar, so in summary I have to say this new SynapS bar is a very promising addition. Kudos!
But he is using two and to reload. If you are using one hand, it has to be only one hand. You can easily do this on the Naish bars that have been out for years now. Same thing with the hidden pin..Naish has that for 4-5 years now.
The bar looks clean and nice, but no new features.
